Teaching Is More Effective When Kids Are Having Fun

This frolicking adventure teaches children about prepositions as they follow a very focused fox in his chase for a mischievous mouse.

Kids will love learning what a preposition is and how it can connect words together when they see the fox chase the mouse around the house, under the fence, into the barn, out the window, and even through the chicken coop. Using additional learning activities at the end of the book, children can then apply what they've learned.

Around the House, the Fox Chased the Mouse is an installment in Rick Walton's award-winning language arts series, which has sold over 150,000 copies. Kids will adore his silly stories, colorful and funny illustrations, and witty wordplay, while teachers and parents will love the definitions and learning activities provided
